I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Cisco has a bunch of perks; Flexibility, Growth, Exposure, Work/Life Balance, Great Atmosphere, Work Family. Overall Cisco cares about their employees and what makes them happy.

Cons

Cisco only has a couple of negatives in my opinion. Performance reviews are slightly unfair but don't really harm you(meaning you are more likely to get average but that means good). Visiting HQ depends upon the team you work for and some teams never send people some limits visibility face to face (WebEx makes up for that a little but still would like to shake a hand from time to time.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Send your employees once every 2 years to shake hands in primary work locations. Find a better way to stank rank employees based on peers.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility. Depends on the nature of your job, however from my experience, I've been able to achieve a successful career and still be present for the afterschool and in-class activities, sicknesses and other situations where a typical "in-office" 8-5 job would not allow.

    Cons

    Tyring to achieve a job change within a different organization within the company can be challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more into the in-house career movement tool
